Overview of the Axis Q1941-E PT

Call for availability prior to ordering

This outdoor-ready thermal IP camera by Axis offers thermal imaging in 384 x 288 resolution that can be scaled up to 768 x 576. It delivers reliable security monitoring of areas that are often in complete darkness or subject to smoke, haze or fog. A choice of lenses is available and the unit is mounted on a pan-tilt (PT) motor for precise navigation across wide scenes. The unit also features on-board storage and support for Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).

The camera’s IP66-rated aluminium housing features a built-in window heater which allows it to be used effectively in outdoor locations and operate continuously in temperatures as low as -40°C. A selection of lens sizes allows users to choose the most suitable viewing angle (from 6.2° to 55°) for their surveillance requirements. (Please select the required lens size from the dropdown menu above).

Using a variety of advanced image optimisation features, the camera is able to produce high-quality IP video at all times. Electronic image stabilisation (EIS) technology is included to reduce the effects of camera movement for sharper image capture. Additionally, Axis Corridor Format is a helpful feature that maximises area coverage in narrow scenes by vertically orientating the video stream.

Video motion detection alarms can be configured to enhance scene awareness and notify users of activity via notifications such as email. Integrated shock detection technology is also supported and will trigger an alert if the camera is subject to impact. Thermal imaging cameras are less sensitive to shadows and challenging light conditions, resulting in greater accuracy and fewer false alarms than non-thermal network cameras.

Axis Zipstream technology lowers bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of up to 50%, ensuring that important details in the image are retained in the video stream, while unnecessary data can be removed. Installation is simplified with support for PoE and recordings can be written to the on-board MicroSD card (not included) to provide a helpful backup of data if the network fails.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select from the accessories tab if required.
